Boris Said to Serve as Grand Marshal at 2015 Mitty

The Classic Motorsports Mitty, one of the largest vintage events in the U.S., will celebrate racing legend Boris Said when it returns to Road Atlanta on April 24-26, 2015.

Although he is now a well-known NASCAR driver with his own hardcore fans (known as “Said Heads”), Boris Said’s roots—and his reputation as a “road course ringer”—lie in road racing, where he learned his craft and was most successful behind the wheel of some of BMW’s finest race cars. He will again be paired with BMW at The Mitty, as the brand will be the featured marque for 2015.

Said made his IMSA debut in 1993 driving a BMW M3, and won the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring competing in that series. He was also the first American to win the 24 Hours Nürburgring, an honor he claimed while driving a BMW Motorsport-entered BMW M3 GTR in 2005. He still competes in both the IMSA and NASCAR series; less well known is the fact that he is also the president of BMW of Murrieta (California), which received the 2014 BMW Center of Excellence Award and is ranked number one in the nation.

Boris will be signing autographs and meeting with fans Saturday afternoon at the Classic Motorsports tent in the Speedfest vendor midway located in Road Atlanta’s infield; he will also participate in a fan forum there on Saturday evening. Don’t miss this chance to hang out with Boris in an intimate setting and hear colorful stories from his racing career.

The Classic Motorsports Mitty is presented by Hagerty and sanctioned by HSR. Tickets are on sale now at hsrtickets.com. For more information and event updates, visit classicmotorsports.net/mitty.
